Santa Monica College’s solar panel curriculum

Santa Monica College in California is making another “green” move.  The college plans to offer a certificate in solar panel installation.  According to the LA Times, college officials initiated the process to add a new program to its offerings in May. The 18-unit curriculum at Santa Monica College includes a three-course-series — PV1, PV2 and PV3 — that covers the essentials of photovoltaic panels and solar systems, getting more detailed as students progress to the next class in successive semesters.   Included with each course is a lab component that involves physically installing panels on roofs.
